Abstract: The design of wetlands based on groundwater as the principal source of hydrology pose uncertainties in areas where erratic seasonal groundwater fluctuations exist. Under these conditions, the need for accurate prediction of the behavior of groundwater is of paramount importance. This paper presents a case history and a statistical approach adopted to model groundwater for a wetland created in a landscape position which does not allow for the use of surface water inputs.
